This programme asks where and how were the plays of Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides performed? What did theatre mean to the Greeks? Chris Emlyn-Jones looks at archaeological evidence on the grou...nd - in Athens, Epidaurus and Thorikos - and the evidence of pained vases from museums around the world, to reconstruct a sense of the importance of Greek drama in the 5th century.
